The LGL (large granular lymphocytic) leukemia model was used in this study to induce leukemia in young, male rats within a relatively short period of time by engrafting spleen cells from aged leukemic rats.
A total of 72 animal (divided into 4 groups/18 animals each) were used in this study.
Exposure duration: 20 h/day, 7 days/week for up to 10 weeks
animals were treated in four groups: i) exposure to 1 mT magnetic field ii) no exposure to magnetic field iii) exposure to 0.1 µT magnetic field (ambient control) iv) 5 Gy whole body irradiation from Cobalt-60 4 days before start of exposure to EMF
